  Guns and shooting!!!
« on: March 18, 2010, 20:26:37 PM » by Tuner
How time flies.   Years roll by so swiftly that we do not even notice that the world has changed so much!  Sometimes I look around me with amazement. Is this real?  In shops I can see rows and rows of revolvers, pistols and rifles. Air rifles, of the latest technological design and concept are here for the buying!!!!  Telescopes!!! and shining metallic ammunition lie in boxes in shop windows!!!!  Am I dreaming?   Happily this is real.   Sadly, I can have all this now, in my twilight years.    I suppose I should consider myself lucky that I have survived to see this at all because the struggle has been so long!!!!!!

This change would not have come about were it not for the splendid work done by a dedicated few, who had the vision and the courage to plod on even when other local shooting organisations , instead of helping, continuosly put 'spanners in the works' to sabotage the success of the few who toiled so hard for all this to materialise!   I am so indebted to these people, and hope that, others, sometimes stop to think and find out for themselves how this have come to be.   The tragedy is that most never care, and just enjoy their chosen sport without giving a hoot of who were those who brought this all about!!!!

May the shooting fraternity in Malta remain an example of sincere sportsmanship and good behaviour to serve as a shining  example for all other sporting activities in these small beautiful Islands we call home.

You said it all there Tuner. I will always remain proud to have been there in the thick of it as one of those few you mention!
